Details for: Tecapa
Tecapa is a complex stratovolcano at the NW end of a cluster of volcanoes in eastern El Salvador between San Vicente and San Miguel volcanoes. It is seen here from the west, across the Río Lempa, which is hidden behind the flat area in the foreground. The peaks on the far left horizon lie behind the Berlín caldera, whose rim is visible on the west side of the complex. The Tecapa volcanic complex currently displays fumarolic activity, and a producing geothermal plant is located at the Berlín geothermal field. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1999 (Smithsonian Institution).
